And makes no sense, they have people coming from all over the world to work on the boat, to the point as the other guy said in his video you have to sign up on their calendar to be there to work. Hundred's of thousands views everytime a new video comes out...

Kinda seemed weird that the guy was laughing when talking about how much blood there was. I have watched some of his videos but mostly when I watch I skip through pretty fast. Hope he is ok. If it is a prank, then you really have to wonder about the motive.

Noted: 168k subs at this time..

If they are doing it as a social experiment, curious to see the outcome.

For those of you who think the Dr is fake I can assure you he isn't. I have met the man personally. He is a great guy and saved my mom's life. As for people who couldn't find him you need to get better at internet research. You can find him by literally Googleing neurosurgeon and tulsa. He is one of the most prominent neurosurgeons in Oklahoma. as for him being weird on camera I imagine it's not everyday a doctor has someone walk up to them and shove a camera in their face and ask them to give a prognosis. I have a tendency to believe that this actually happened one because Doug doesn't seem the kind of person to fake this and two because the doctor doesn't seem the kind of person to fake this and has a whole lot to lose in the process.

I wouldn't think he was either but there still is no reporting by local media who have done several stories over the years on Doug's build
Linked picture looks the same as guy in video I don't know what to think now, I can't see a Dr. loaning his name to any kind of scheme

The face book page has been up and down like crazy. https://www.facebook.com/groups/svse...epa=SEARCH_BOX

Turns out the dude taking the selfie is a actor and when he was at the SV Seeker yard a year ago, they filmed a "live" video that was about Doug selling out to Hollywood. Also selfie dude and the Dr. have been facebook friends for the last 5 years.

A couple of close people have been told it was a hoax, so that they wouldn't worry. But apparently they are releasing a video at 9 central tonight to explain everything.

Apparently they have double downed and released another video, of Betsy sitting there saying they just don't know if Doug will pull through.

Don't know if its a joke or not but if it is, his head would still be ringing from being in an enclosed space. The more recent vid rocked the camera from 20' away. I get the feeling it may of been an intended joke that went wrong. Doug likes poking the safety sallies.

If he did it on purpose, fuck him either way

He doesn't really do allot of videos for views maybe the opposite, he hasn't been doing enough lately.

yeah, but that's a pretty fucked up prank for everyone else that gave two shits because they've been following his life for the last decade on the internet.

I'm not saying I was shook or something, but I was like man, that sucks.

I was kind of bummed I guess.

but why?
that's still my question.

What body of water does that boat expect to be in?


And what's the estimated displacement?

All for those SWEET CLICKS. They want their video to go viral so they get more sweet sweet clicks. Don't forget to subscribe because we don't have real jobs!

Oddly enough there is a channel from the Tulsa area to the Mississippi and from there to the gulf

It takes a special kind of person to build a boat like that 500 miles from the ocean.

Tulsa OK is the most inland sea port in the US. I think he only has to Truck the boat like 8 miles to get it in the water.

Haha I watched the chick's 2nd video about it and she's not a good liar at all. At least the slow dude who was sanding his dinghy made it look like something bad had happened.

I could see him attempting something involving a small bang just to stoke the fire with all the safety nazi, he's never before been bashful about telling them to piss off and mind there own business.

This though seems like it was an seriously failed attempt at some lighthearted fun went completely sideways, That second video they posted a couple hours ago from the stationary camera shows it being one hell of a big badda boom and a big badda boom in a confined space that your standing in is seriously bad juju.

Well no shit! Still, that 14 mile move is going to be expensive.
